Changing the Game in Revenue Growth, Presented by SAP

The digital economy has transformed the way B2B buyers discover, research and purchase products and services. They rely on digital resources for a majority of the buying journey, and they use their mobile devices to access and gather that information. They don’t want or need to deal with a salesperson until the actual purchase decision. Today’s B2B buyer differs from company to company and from generation to generation.
